If BG had 5 fouls on block shot attempts or guarding someone, I wouldn't complain but 2 fouls came after incidental contact that on other player's is a no call. Another call after moving her arm while it was being grabbed.... Trash

Just because LA is rolling around on the floor, it doesn't mean that they were fouled.

Lots of fouls and floppong by the Sparks.

Plus you know the League wants the same two Teams in the Finals as last year and they are going to see that it happens.

Night!!

What about the block by Parker that was called her 4th even though it was all ball. Why so many fouls on LA if the refs were trying to help them?

You should not be able to review a play where a foul was not called and call a foul. Point blank.

The refs held BG to 4 pts with the fouls.

I wanted BG to get a tech so bad

Can they stop fucking reviewing?

How is it that a ref is able to not call a foul, then stop play to call for a review, take 10 minutes to watch video, and finally end up calling a foul after all? How do the rules allow for this?

She literally walks down the court and they have to review it in case it might be a hostile act.

Nope! Not even Syl, which makes me shake my head. All the girl wants to do is play basketball. The refs need to do better.

I'm interested to see if Cambage gets reviewed this much next season

Nneka just flopped again. Sad


I agree with the original statement about borders and interest. I disagree that rib shot was a flop by nneka. Been hit there in the same spot same position in CBB and its painful like you never knew!

Also..LA beat the crap out of Mitchell (and Diana, but especially FLB) tonight. And nothing was ever called.

While I do agree that the excessive reviewing made me stop watching this game early--that last foul was clearly a rib shot with an elbow. Per Lobo if they call a review right away you can call just a common foul in the WNBA. I don't make the rules--but that's what the captions said.

Anyway, kudos to LA for a game one win, Beard as always was phenomenal.

I can understand how you end up with that as the rule when you're just discussing things in a room. You want thm to be able to examine things that could be a violent act or a flagrant, even if they're not sure what they saw. You want them to be able to make the right call afterwards, whatever it may be. The problem is human nature. The video's constantly there as a fallback, so they make no decisions, watch everything, bore everyone to death, and referee the game by TV.

I really appreciate BG. I swear no player deals with as much BS on the court as she does and she always goes and does her job.

In the past 2 games, everything she's done has been reviewed and in my opinion it's excessive. The refs need a course on how to officiate her because she can't be beaten up every game and then punished because she's physically taller than everyone.

After this, I probably won't tune in to game 2.

I mean, it's not like Nneka didn't get beat up tonight. Griner practically ran into her nose and then also elbowed her in the ribs. Yes, Griner does get her fair share of rough play, but it's not like she doesn't dole out her fair share of punishment too. You make it sound like other players are barely touched all night.

Tried to have a viewing party with my straight, men's basketball loving buddies. We didn't even make it to halftime. They couldn't believe that THIS was a semifinals game. Sad and not even fun to watch.

Contact by Griner was preceded by a trademark Nneka chest bump. I like Ogwumike a lot, but she does that all the time, it's a foul, and she never gets called for it. You can't push forward with your chest into the player trying to make a move with the ball. It's a foul every time. Called correctly, that play was a 2 shot foul on Ogwumike. Griner should have been shooting free throws, not sitting down.

By the way, I have no stake or rooting interest in who wins this game or series. I just thought this game was a disgrace.

I never said that other player's don't. I was specifically talking about Brittney Griner. How many players were reviewed continuously based on plays that had No excessive content?? Only 1 and that was Brittney Griner. My point is Just because shes 6'9", doesn't mean that every time she's making a move with the ball and her arms are moving (simply because that's where they are because of her height) is a flagrant or offensive foul. It's getting over the top.

Phoenix can take this series to 5 games. Taurasi has to be a factor and their bench needs to step up. They have the deeper bench while it looks like Agler will stick with his 7 player rotation. If this series goes to 5, Agler needs to trust his bench more and give a few minutes to Wiese & Jackson-Jones.

At the least they should save it for dead time. I also hate it when some good play has just transpired and they are off chatting about something not related to the game on hand. Also if they mistakenly identify a payer during a play they should have the common sense to correct it especially when immidiate none play time allows.

I think the one thing that fans on both sides can agree with is that this was an extremely poorly officiated game on both sides. The bad calls started in the first quarter and continued through out. Were the crap calls the reason for the outcome of the game? NO - not in my opinion. But clearly both teams were extremely frustrated throughout the game, as were the coaches and fans.

As I watched Borders sitting court side, all I could think was can she see what everyone watching sees? Flopping has always been part of the game, let's be honest, both teams have players who are experts, so don't chalk up all the flops to Nneka or AB, DT is famous for it and good at it (Her and Nneka are 2 of the best). And until the league changes the rules, it's going to occur. But officials should know a flop when they see one, cause they sure as hell see every damn hand check.

At the end of the day however, the level (low, low, level) of officiating in this league needs to be addressed. It's ridiculously lacking and where is the accountability to official for flagrantly BAD calls? There is none!! It frustrates player and creates potential for players to get hurt. This has gone on way too long and something needs to be done.

Let's see what game 2 brings

Sad Rolling Eyes Confused

There was a post on here that I responded to. when I hit sumbit neither the post or my reply showed up! What's up with that. It had to do with the league giving T's for flopping.

8:21 in the 2nd, the double flop was totally stupid, both should'a been T-ed.

The Cannon+Parker double tech was unnecessary. Basketball play right up through the rebound. What did the ref think about the orange shoe bottom Not disappearing into lady parts? Counter glare by Cannon is normal. I really don't get this one.

I don't think Dee is over the hill... But, just fatigued AF after that long trek from CT to Cali.
I suspect she will have a Taurasi-like game 2.
I honestly thought she was reserving her energy for the 4th QTR to hit a big shot, but the Sparks wouldn't let the game get close enough.

Huh.
I missed that ... (I blame the media - cough) ... underneath all the chatter about Parker and Cannon. All the tv replays were about that part.
